After stuffing everything into a day that you possibly can – including workouts, work and making sure you call your mother (call your mother) – a healthy dinner can bring the entire day to the right kind of close. And – there’s nothing wrong with sneaking in some QT over the dining room table.
Fiance and I try to split up cooking duties and this salad is a mainstay on our menu. It’s packed with protein, loaded with veggies and it’s a house flavor-ite.
Here’s what we have on hand to bring this meal together (makes 2 servings):
- 2 Chicken breasts (usually prepped Sundays and marinated in a little olive oil, garlic salt, dried onions, balsamic vinegar and a splash of orange juice)
- 1/2 cup quinoa
- 1 avocado, sliced and divided in 2
- 1 cup of tomatoes – I usually choose cherry tomatoes
- 1/2 cup black beans
- 2 cups arugula
- Dress with balsamic vinegar/ 1 TBS olive oil/salt and pepper
What’s your go-to quick, healthy meal?
